DAP To Contest 54 Parliamentary, 115 State Seats In Next General

KUALA LUMPUR, May 6 (Bernama) -- The DAP plans to contest 54 parliamentary and 115 state seats in the next general election, focusing primarily on Penang, Perak, Selangor, Sabah and Sarawak, party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said today. These seats were identified and recommended by the party's state committees, he added. Malaysia has 219 parliamentary seats. In the last general election, in 2004, only state seats in Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah were contested, of which there are 567. State elections in Sarawak are held separately. In the 2004 general election, the DAP contested 44 parliamentary and 104 state seats, and won 12 parliamentary and 15 state seats.

The party also won six state seats in the Sarawak state election last year, bringing the total number of state seats it held to 21. However, the figure reduced by one to 20 last month after its Bahau State Assemblymen Lim Fui Ming crossed over to the MCA. "If possible, of course we want to adopt the suggestion by the state committees but we also wish to consult with PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) to ensure one-to-one fights with the Barisan Nasional (BN)," he told reporters on the sidelines of the DAP special congress, here.

The one-day congress amended the party constitution to enable its decision-making body, the Central Executive Committee (CEC), to postpone the party's national and state elections for up to 12 months to enable it to concentrate on the next general election, which it expects to be held soon although the current mandate of the government only expires in mid-2009. The DAP is the third political party, after Umno and Gerakan of the ruling BN, to postpone party elections. The MCA, another BN component, is due to do the same at the end of this month.

The DAP holds triennial elections, the last one being in September 2004. The state and national elections this year were originally scheduled from September to the end of this year. On the next general election, Lim said the party would focus on seats in Penang, Perak, Selangor, Sabah and Sarawak besides its traditional, mainly urban and predominantly Chinese constituencies."The prospect also looks good for us in Johor but we are not so confident," he said, adding that the party has outlined six key principles for its cooperation with public organisations and political parties in the next general election.
